Live music starts at 7 p.m. from the front porch of Lakewood Public Library
The right vocalist can make for an exhilarating performance and such will be the case this Friday, August 18, when Becky Boyd & The Groove Train plays LakewoodAlive’s Front Porch Concert Series.
Sponsored by Bentley Wealth Management of Raymond James, the Front Porch Concert Series features free, live music on the front steps of Lakewood Public Library (15425 Detroit Avenue) in Downtown Lakewood from 7 to 9 p.m. for 11 consecutive Fridays. The series, which aims to foster Lakewood’s vibrancy while providing a family-friendly summer entertainment option, runs through September 15.
Week 7 brings to the stage Becky Boyd & The Groove Train, a four-member band known to captivate audiences with a dynamic set list ranging from blues and jazz to folk and classic rock. The band is fronted by renowned vocalist Becky Boyd, who has been playing the Cleveland club scene for 40+ years and has developed a reputation for singing with a tremendous amount of soul, feeling and emotion.
Becky Boyd & The Groove Train made its debut in January 2015 and has been playing regularly at music venues throughout Northeast Ohio ever since. In addition to Boyd, the band features bassist Alfredo Guerrieri, guitarist Michael Bay and drummer Greg Campioletti. Each is a seasoned musician in his own right, fully capable of complementing Boyd’s vocals.
Now in its seventh year, LakewoodAlive’s popular Front Porch Concert Series adds vibrancy and an enhanced sense of community to Lakewood’s urban core, drawing several thousand attendees annually.
